    Hi, I've been using the E2Cs for a while to listen to lossless files on an ipod. With a little EQ adjustment I like the tonal balance, but I've recently found that I can't wear in-ear 'phones without some discomfort, and I prefer more interaction with my environment. Also, the top end seems to be somewhat edgy.

    I bought a pair of Sennheiser 218s, without hearing them, and what a disappointment, overly warm, stodgy and congested.

    I would like a portable headphone, as much under £100 as possible, that has a similar tonal balance to the Shure E2C, but is not an in ear type, preferably open backed.

    What suggestions do you have?

    My main head phones are Alessandros driven by a Meier Cantata headphone amp, and I do like that sound.
